You thought rudder problems were an issue in your wee yacht? Well, when it hits one of the world’s largest container ships as she enters Suez Canal, it’s a whole different ballgame.  Check out the Colombo Express taking a chunk (and some containers) off the Tanjong in the spectator video above; the canal was shut down for about half a day with minimal pollution issues and no injuries; a lucky end to a collision that could have been a hell of a lot worse.  Thanks to SA’er ‘pipe dream’ for the heads up.

Never mind the problems with it (and they are myriad), how cool would it be if the Ro-Ro of the future looked like this? Norwegian engineer Terje Lade says his Wind Ship (did he mean “Wing Ship”?) could be an economic reality sooner than you think; 3 or 4 years until the first one splashes.  ”It will give you a positive pull in the direction of the ship more than fifty percent of the time, as an average, without doing anything,” he said. “You don’t have to think about it. It’s so simple.”

Simple until the first storm, apparently.  Discuss here.  There’s even some video.
